Default Hats for Curly Hair

We're doing an article about hats for curly hair and would love your suggestions for hat types and product suggestions when wearing hats.

I really like the looks of a cloche or bell hat with curly hair.

Here's a blog article about them & a picture of someone we're all familiar with wearing one:

I like these hats http://www.girl32.com/?page=how_to

I have horses and am outside a lot, here in Texas it is two temps: hot and cold. I like that I can put my pony out the back and it doesn't squish it all and mess up my curls too awfully bad.

when I wear a hat I wear either wear a toque or a peruvian hat (the one with ear flaps that hang down). Last year I put it on while bent over like a plop. This year I'm gonna try a pineapple.

I honestly think I look like a moron in a hat unless I'm wearing pigtails with it. Otherwise I look like this guy:



Unfortunately I have to wear a baseball hat as part of my summer uniform.

Here's a great pattern for a Calorimetry. It's a great knitted scarf-like hair thingy. There are lots of great photos in this link so you can see what they look like. Can't wait to try to make one of these this weekend.

I've avoided wearing hats since I went CGuy...

My next project is a hat. I wanna knit a chullo (the peruvian hats whatsercurl was talking about). So, I'm gonna put a satin lining on the inside, and I'll be able to use hats again...

I don't like wearing hats very often, though.

Hey ag_613. Will you look at the pattern I refernced in the post above yours and tell me what you think of this directions? I'm a VERY beginning knitter and find those directions to be confusing. Are they or am I just too new to knitting to be able to do this type of pattern.

Thanks! Beth

Thanks AG! I couldn't for the life of me remember the real name. I made 3 last year. The first one was off a pattern from some random knitter on the internet. The pattern on it was beautiful the sizing not so much. I made it for a male adult and it fit a 10 yr old girl. LOL

I revamped the pattern and went on to make 2 more. I put fleece lining in both mine.

I love that site for patterns. I made 3 different pair of socks from there last year for gifts. One of them was a pair of pedicure socks. So cute!

Do you think it would be too hard for a beginniner, Whatsercurl?

As long as you understand the terminology used and what to do, i.e., turn work, SL1, it's a very straight forward pattern. If you have any issues feel free to PM me, or there are GREAT knitting turtorials at www.knittinghelp.com

Very cute too. Wish I could wear headbands but I look pretty hilarious in them with my bushy hair. LOL

Well... whatsercurl already answered your question.

As she said, you just need to know how to do what the pattern says.

What are pedicure socks? I couldn't find them.

I wanted to learn how to knit continental style (I'm a thrower) as I heard it was much faster. I found the site while looking for a book. The video makes it so much easier but alas there are some tricks it's hard for an old dog to learn. LOL

I didn't even realize there was a forum there until I looked after you mentioned it. It is knitting season again so I'll have to sign up.

I made them for my best friend in lightweight alpaca for her birthday last year. So soft.
